My favorite summer dinner

Since it's gotten so blazingly hot and oppressively muggy outside, my husband and I have tried to lighten our evening meals to counteract the stifling heat. Here's our current favorite dinner:

4 whole wheat tortillas
2 cups cooked, cubed oven roasted chicken
4 tablespoons hummus (roasted red pepper hummus, if you can find it)
A generous handful of fresh basil leaves
1 cup sliced cucumber, seeded
1 diced red bell pepper
1 sliced avocado
Crumbled feta cheese (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

1. Spread 1 tablespoon hummus on half of each tortilla.
2. Divide the chicken, basil and veggies among all tortillas equally. Add feta cheese if you're using it.
3. Roll up into wraps and enjoy. These are great with fries, chips, a salad, fresh veggies -- anything goes.

Other tasty additions: Alfalfa sprouts, zucchini slices, roasted red pepper, guacamole, tomato, onions, cilantro.

You can thank me later.
